Published: Fri Feb 06 2015

Grocery retailers in Guatemala are trying to give consumers a better shopping experience. Modern channel retailers, such as supermarkets, which are enjoying strong growth in the country in terms of outlets and sales, with respective growth of 8% and 15% in current terms, are focusing on improving the quality of produce, offering a wider variety of brands; both domestic and imported. They want consumers to do all their shopping in one store, rather than in several specialist outlets.

Competitive Landscape

Wal-Mart Centroamérica SA is the leading grocery retailer in Guatemala with a retail value share of 19% in current terms. The company operates several brands of modern grocery retailers, such as Wal-Mart hypermarkets, Paiz supermarkets, Despensa Familiar and Maxi Despensa discounters, and Club-Co warehouse club. All its brands have a strong presence in the country, mainly in urban areas. However, expansion towards rural areas of the country has begun with its more accessible brands, like Despensa Familiar.

Industry Prospects

Trends detected in grocery retailers, such as the expansion of modern grocery retailers both in rural and urban areas of the country are expected to continue throughout the forecast period. Discounters, which carry lower prices, have stronger growth rates in rural areas, while supermarkets are targeting more urban areas. It is not likely that consumers will switch from small independent grocers, to modern grocery retailers, since they are more convenient for daily shopping. However, they might visit these larger stores as a monthly or weekly shopping experience and the smaller ones for daily needs. Grocery retailers are expected to reach sales of GTQ71 billion ex VAT in 2019.
